produced in japan. we brought those to the united states for several reasons. one, we can compete from the base there to relate the ports in here and that production will stay in the u.s. in the exported to south america and europe. we feel there is a very good chance at a very good condition to not only build here, but compete to a u.s. base. a year ago we did the same thing in victoria, texas on another excavator plan. these are the large machines. 42 that 5010 machines that came in from japan that will be built in us for the first time in the united states and exporting to south america. some of that is coming back to the u.s. and i'm happy and proud of that is the u.s. manufacturing come to me. in fact, we spent about $6.5 billion in capital expense in the last five years in the united states. we've also spent about $10 million in research and development. we had a plant in our system here in the united states that exports very large mining equipment. we have factories were 80% of the reductionist for export only. we work hard at being competitive both internally. we also work hard wit

any votes that i have seen taken in the years that i have been here in the united states senate. the majority, with only majority -- the majority, with only majority votes, the same as was passed with obamacare, with only democrat votes, changed the rules of the senate in a way that is detrimental, in my view, not only to the united states senate, not only to those of us in the minority party, but great damage to the institution itself. one of the men who served in this senate for a long, long time that we respected as much or more than any other leader -- he certainly knew the senate rules more than any of the rest of us combined -- was one robert byrd. three months before his death, robert byrd wrote this letter, "during my half century of service and various leadership posts in the u.s. senate including majority leader, minority leader, majority whip and now president pro tempore, i've carefully studied this body's histories, rules and precedent. studying those rules leads one to an understanding of the constitutional framers' vision for the senate as an institution and the s

public square. welcome to you around the united states and around the world. we have an important show for you today starting with the failure to reach agreement on a nuclear deal with iran. despite the presence top diplomats in geneva this weekend. why were they unable to make a deal? would it be sellable back home in iran, in the united states, in france? and then an assassination. this man, the head of the pakistani taliban, was killed last week by an american drone strike just when the taliban was supposed to sit down to talk peace. was the killing a good negotiating strategy, we'll discuss. and have the most recent rev revelations from edward snowden. should they? we have two experts give us different views. the prime minister says yes and he did it. finally a tv topic. why one nation spent nine hours glued to the tube to watch a sweater being made. but first, here's my take. it's difficult to know what to make of the failure to arrive at an agreement between the west and iran. high level talks have ended. negotiations will resume at a lower level in ten days. secretary of state j

stealing all your data. to look at that from the perspective of the united states, looking from that vision, the point is you broke into that computer system. you didn't destroy it, you didn't damage it, but that's an unauthorized access. you may have by going through that system and publishing it, committed all sorts of other harms, including violating surveillance law and entrapment statutes. depending on your world view whether that is the case now or not, the real dialogue has to be whether or not that should be the case and how those types of activities, if they lead to the positive good goals we want, how you do that in coordination, cooperation or under the guidance of nation states and lawful systems, and what comes of those. there is a debate on the active defense side. certainly i've never been in favor and strongly oppose anything that looks like vigilanteism, going out and getting a pound of flesh for a pound of harm as pure matter of revenge, but i think that there's a lot that does president fall into that category. when people speak about active defense, there is

between the united states and iran, between iran and the western community in general, that is going to have an impact on iran's role in the region. and we are focusing today on iran and its eastern neighbors, specifically afghanistan, pakistan and india. while iran is often considered a middle eastern country, in fact, it's historically its cultural ties are as strong if not stronger with its eastern neighbors, with afghanistan and south asia. and, of course, iran will be a pivotal player as it has been all along in afghanistan, especially next year as the united states and nato began to withdraw all its, some if not all of their forces. we are launching a new issue brief this year that have some recommendations for u.s. policy. including a bigger role helping afghanistan manage its water resources, which is a key issue for iran as a downstream neighbor. and the united states can contribute to resolving other regional problems such as energy shortages, ethnic conflict, and drug trafficking. this would have enormous benefit not just for iran but for afghanistan, pakistan, india. indeed,
